Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa

Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa are both based in L.A., but their collaboration grew out of the friendship they developed after crossing paths on the road numerous times, particularly when traversing the festival circuit in Europe. “I was, of course, a big fan of his,” says Hart. “I played a show in London in early 2010, and heard through the grapevine that he was there, though I didn’tsee him.” Bonamassa also remembers the show.

Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa are both based in L.A., but their collaboration grew out of the friendship they developed after crossing paths on the road numerous times, particularly when traversing the festival circuit in Europe. “I was, of course, a big fan of his,” says Hart. “I played a show in London in early 2010, and heard through the grapevine that he was there, though I didn’tsee him.” Bonamassa also remembers the show. When they bumped into each other in Holland soon after, Hart recalls, “He mentioned we should do a project together..

What evolved from that encounter was the idea for Don’t Explain, which Bonamassa came up with during the recording of his latest album, Dust Bowl, in Santorini, Greece in summer 2010. “I was up late one night, I couldn’t sleep. I was playing songs on my iPod from the reissue of Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out, which included all the opening acts from that Stones show,” he says. “As soon asthe Ike & Tina Turner tracks came on, I just said out loud, ‘Beth Hart.’ I e-mailed Kevin Shirley, saying, ‘Let’s do a soul covers record with Beth,’ and he replied back, ‘Actually, that’s a great idea.’” Hart agreed, though she says, “When I got the call that he wanted to do a soul record with me, I figured I’d be the background singer. He said ‘no, you’re singing lead.’” Bonamassa says,“Beth has been an absolute hidden gem. She was a beautiful voice, she’s a fantastic singer. I wanted her front and center.’ « hide
